C/2014 E2 (Jacques) - August 23/24, 2014

I drove out to Sunset Crater tonight to get a shot of an Iridium Flare, and brought my equatorial mount with me to follow up with some images of Comet Jacques. Its beautiful turquoise coma was drifting through the Cassiopeia Milky Way this evening and showed up even in my 20-30 second wide angle tripod shots. The images below are from stacks of 3 3-minute exposures at 55 mm from the Canon T3i on the SkyView Pro equatorial mount.
